Asked about their assessment of Gosnell, the male juror said that for most of them, “it came down to a greed factor” — Gosnell would come in, give a service and get paid, “and eventually it became a money-generating machine.”
Gosnell faces another trial in federal court on charges that he was running an illegal prescription-drug operation out of his abortion clinic. That trial is set to begin in September.
Separately, at a congressional hearing Wednesday, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. was asked about enforcement of the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.
Has the government handled a case under that law “even once,” asked Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee subcommittee on the Constitution.
Mr. Holder said he did not have such statistics, but would reply to the question later.
